Acting for a vulnerable mother

John acted for a Respondent mother where the father had made an application for the child to live with him. His client needed particular support as she was young and vulnerable, having previously suffered domestic abuse by the father.

John negotiated that the child will live with the mother, and arranged an incremental increase in contact with the father over a period of six months, in a way that was both acceptable to the mother, and child-focussed.
